    I agree that military should be paid, but who are you to say that people on welfare are less deserving? People are out there that have worked and paid in to taxes and are now unemployed and receiving benefits, so just because you may not get paid don't point your finger elsewhere. I have family members that are disabled and can not just go out and get a job, what about them? Would it make you happy to have even more Americans affected? Fight for what's right, but don't push others down in your fight.

    Agree Beth! As a government worker in California, I feel and totaly agree that it has gone all backwards!! And you would get more money if you weren't married and have more kids!
    Thanks all to our damn government! Pay the military first and foremost! They are top priority not stupid congressmen!

    I find it appauling that our militry will not be paid, however congessmen and welfare recpients will be. As a military wife with 5 children I would be better off getting divorced and getting welfare as they still got a raise the last 2 years whereas we did not (oh and if they stop military pay, welfare and congress will still receve their checks WTFG)...SO much for family values!!
